Joomla Training

Get the most out of Joomla

1-2-1 & Group Joomla Training

Joomla is a very powerful Open Source Content Management System that is used to build websites. However, many companies who use Joomla to create websites do not realise that the system is not quite so simple for everyone to use. Even the language that it uses can be difficult to come to terms with.

Bespoke one to one Joomla training

We provide bespoke training in Joomla, usually on a one-to-one basis. That way we teach you the specific skills that you need for the functionality of your site. We don’t teach you about the whole of Joomla and all of the complex nitty-gritty that you won’t ever need to touch.

If you are learning about Joomla for a specific website then we will go through that site with you and ensure that you become familiar with all of the tasks you will need to complete. Whether it’s adding text or images, or more complex menu structures.

We can also provide more technical training on how to install and personalise templates.

Our training can be carried out at our premises in central Chorley, or at your place of work if you prefer. We offer a minimum of 3 hours to begin with and then additional hours can be added if necessary.
